Historic tractors on display in Valmy

A great crowd showed up for this year’s Valmy Thresheree. The 37th annual event was organized by the North Eastern Wisconsin Antique Power Association and ran from August 16th through the 18th. Throughout the weekend event-goers were able to enjoy 50 to 100 year old tractors, watch tractor pulls and participate in the pig mud wrestling competition. Valmy Thresheree organizer Ralph Bocheck says the tractors that are made today would not be able to keep up with some of the historic tractors that were on hand.

 

 

Bocheck adds that next year’s event will feature Wisconsin-built machines but non-Wisconsin made ones will still be able to be shown at the event.
